Vathalayesam anisam hrudhi bhavayami.

I ceaselessly meditate on the Lord of Guruvayur,
Who wears yellow silk and holds in his hands,
Wheel , conch , the mace called Koumodhaki,
And lotus flower and is an ocean of mercy,
Helper of Radha and has a very pretty soft smile. 1

Mookam karothi vaachaalam , pangum langayathe girim,
Yath krupathamaham vandhe paramananda madhavam.

I salute that Madhava of infinite joy who is merciful,
And makes a dumb one speak and make a lame one cross a mountain. 2

I salute the dust of the feet of ladies of Nanda’s Vruja desa,
Where they sing the stories of Vishnu and purify the three worlds. 3


Komalam koojayan venum shyamaloyam kumaraka,

The slightly blackish lad sings in the flute beautifully,
And that divine one who is worshipped by the Vedas,
Appears as the shining Supreme God to me. 4

Vedai ssangapada kramopanishadai gayanthi yam samaga.

By Brahma , Varuna, Indra and the maruths,
And the Vedas and Upanishads also sing about him. 5

W hen they are completely absorbed in him,
And who is worshipped by all the by the,
Humans, devas , asuras and bhootha ganas. 6

Nanda gopa kumaraya Govindaya namo nama.

Salutations and salutations to Krishna son of Vasudeva,
And also the cowherd who is the son of Nandagopa. 7

Let good things occur to the king of the country,
Who looks after his people well, in the path of justice,
Let Cows* and Brahmins** have a pleasant life daily,
Let all people of the world have a very pleasant life. 1

** People in search of God

Let earth be covered with vegetation,

And let good people never have fear. 2

Santhu jeevanthu sarada satham.

Let sonless people have son,
Let people with son have grand sons,
And let people who are poor or rich,
Live and see one hundred autumns. 3
